Gallery at La Villita
The Susan Carlin Studio and Art Gallery at La Villita is now open!! It was a real push to get it ready for last night, but a convention of 2000 dermotologists having a party right outside our front door was too good to pass up. Susan was running on empty after working so hard on all the millions of things she had to get done, but she managed to stay vertical and even talk to people--she is an exceptional artist as well as an exceptional person. I feel so thrilled to be a part of this adventure and want to do all I can to make it a success. I met Mary Sheppard (the other artist--there are just the 3 of us). She does oils and watercolor. She is not a portrait artist unless you consider portraits of old cars and barns. She puts so much character into them that they really are like portraits!
Please come by and visit with us and watch us paint. I will be there every Friday. Mary will be there on Wednesdays and Susan will be there on all the other days.
